    Default GTi6 or S16?

    Hi guys

    Some of you might've seen that I am after a GTi6, trying to get back into a French hot hatch.

    There's one that I'm looking at and it's promising, but the 6s are hard to find at the moment actually.

    There's a S16 on the market for $2k, which means I could throw money at suspension, wheels and maybe even an LSD to make it just how I want it.

    What's the group's view on this? Stock 6 or a little modded S16?

    Cheers
    Vlad

    Stock GTi6 but I'd be far more picky in the inspection than on the s16 because some were really thrashed when new.

    In Australia: 05 206 GTi 180 and '97 406 v6
    In Lebanon: 09 C3 Exclusive

    All in Silver

    Previously '01 206 GTi

    yeah, called, messaged, no response. it's weird that people do that. at the very least if the car has sold and you dont want to talk to me, just take the car off carsales and that's that.

    im hoping the 6 that is being inspected by Karl from Virage checks out alright, but it's tempting to get a $2k car and do it the right way straight away.

    i think he's asking for too much though... sure the paint looks ok and it's low km, but still not convinced
